"Iran will definitely keep pressure on the United States to pave the way for the cooperation of non-American banks with Iran," Mohammad Javad Zarif said during a press conference with visiting EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

"The other party, particularly the United States, is required to implement its commitments in banking cooperation," he said, referring to the historic agreement, which lifted sanctions on Iran in return for it curbing its nuclear activities.

"Our approach to human rights is based on probably the highest standards and we'll never compromise on that. But the second element for our approach to human rights is always engagement in dialogue," Mogherini said.

Zarif said Iran is "ready for dialogue."
